Coquito - A Coconut Rum Cocktail

Coquito – A Coconut Rum Cocktail

I kind of fell in love with the idea of the Coquito – A Coconut Rum Cocktail, before I ever had my first sip of this cocktail concoction. Thinking back, I’m not even sure where I first heard about the creamy, frothy, coconut deliciousness laced with Rum and touched with cinnamon that is the Coquito. Def not when I was growing up in Iowa, lol! The Midwest weather, especially in Minnesota, where I live now isn’t traditionally considered to be too hospitable to people used to warmer climes – or even to us born here. The Coquito will make me forget all that, even though it’s January, now!

Pam Anderson’s Silky Pumpkin Pie

My daughter’s always had a great talent for cooking and years ago, when my son and I were in a pretty severe accident, my daughter (then about 15) made a good portion of the Thanksgiving dinner while I talked her through – from my bed. And we did have pie, but it wasn’t Pam Anderson’s Silky Pumpkin Pie.

Frozen Lemonade Pie – 4 Ingredient

to I found this little oddity of a recipe, Frozen Lemonade Pie, in my Mom’s recipe box after she passed away. I don’t remember my Mom ever making it but it was credited to my Aunt Mary; my Mom always wrote in the upper corner of every card where the recipe came from. I held that card, looking at the ingredients, puzzled (they are a little strange) and the memories started coming back.
